“great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2010

Just got back from staying at hotel brunner for a week with my boy friend.
Had the best time, food was excellent, staff couldnt be more helpful.
one night we asked the best place for a fondue, but they insisted in cooking it for us. It was amazing. my boy friend is a top chef and even he was suprised by the quality and the amount every night.
The only thing about wengen and the hotel are the drinks can be more then you expect. Our bar bill was a little more then we thought, The walk to the hotel is a small treck we always did a short cut up the ski slope which did give us alot of amusment.
The journey from the airport is 3 hours on a coach and then 20 mins on the train, just to warn you as we had no idea of this. but once you get there you realise it is soooo worth .
I will be going back to wengen for the next few years as the skiing is so vast you can ever get bored.

We booked this hotel via last minute.com and didn't expect too much to be honest, however we were pleasantly surprised!
After the 10 minute walk up hill we were met by a very warm welcome, given the keys to room and were instantly won over by the fab view from our balcony.
The room was basic but clean, we had clean towels every day and the sheets were changed mid week.
The food was excellent and the staff really good. This truley is a ski to door hotel, we would not hesitate to go back here.

Nice large room, everything very clean. Towels changed every day and bedding half way through the week. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food very nice but no choice at evening meal. We liked everything though as it was all very nice. Breakfast a bit boring - same every day. Fruit salad, yogurt, corn flakes, muesli, bread cheese and ham. Packed lunches also a bit boring but very nice and saved us a fortune. A bit of an uphill trek from the village if you are a bit unfit like me. Only a 12 minute walk though even with me stopping a few times. Overall, excellent value for money and I would stay there again.

Most importantly the area around Wengen, Lauterbrunnen and Grindlewald is unbelieveably beautiful and a great place for a summer holiday if you enjoy walking and fresh air.

We travelled on an Ingham's package bought from Lastminute.com for under £1,000 we had flights with easyjet from Bristol, train tickets from geneva to Wengen, Full board and a modest packed lunch. So we didn't expect the Ritz and for that reason we were happy enough with the Hotel Brunner.

The fabric of Hotel is a little tired and it has passed its heydey. Inghams advised us to telephone from Lauterbrunnen station to ensure that we were met. The 'phone was not answered after twenty four rings so we hopped on the train to Wengen. On arrival there was no obvious transport from the Brunnerso we set off up the hill with our cases. As we trudged a small van pulled up alongside and asked whether we were heading for the Brunner. There was only room for our cases so we arrived on foot.

Reception was friendly and polite. Our room on the second floor was quite small but had two easy chairs, as mall table and a baclony. There was no TV but we did have a baclony with a wonderful mountain view. Without thebalcony the holiday would have been very different. The bathroom was fine. No complaints about housekeeping.

Meals were fairly uninspired but fine considering the price paid, albeit with no choice. Every course except dessert was garnished with chives. Breakfast was acceptable but the ancient toaster failed to perform.

The hotel guests are almost entirely English, we were told that Wengen is an 'English' resort.

We had to leave very early and were grateful for an early morning coffee and a lift to the station.

Wengen
Wengen is marketed as a village wihout cars. That is strictly true but there is plenty of traffic, vans, skip lorries, motorcycles and electric buggies all moving around the narrow lanes quite swiftly.

Not surprisingly there are many restaurants and hotels and a few shops.

We paid £260 for two unlimited travel passes for the cable cars and mountain railway. Not cheap but much better than paying every time and great for hopping around across the mountains - we tried to walk for two or three hjours each day but used transport a lot.

We had two days of bad weather, torrential, depressing rain which restricts what you can do down to almost zero. The good days brought beautiful weather.

Just returned after holiday with husband ,daughter(26) and her boyfriend(31). we are 62 & 63 respectively. both couples had lovely balcony rooms with spectacular views over the Jungfrau, Eiger and Monch . Rooms cleaned daily and towels changed. I accept that the hotel could do with some redecoration but at prices paid and considering that area means you will be out most of day -or gazing at fantastic views if in - we all felt that his was not of much importance! Staff very friendly and helpful and garden a delightful spot to relax after long hikes or journeys.
Food was adequate -always of lovely presentation and quality but slightly small on portions for the males in our party. Table service very welcomed and staff always cheerful. the free packed lunches were the same each day and could have been varied a bit more. nevertheless they were always ready for you and were nutritious.
reception would look at local webcam to tell you conditions at the most popular tourist attractions and walking paths so you could judge if visit worthwhile that day.
Evenings quiet but even our 'young ones' glad of this after long days wandering in alps and the air really knocks you out!
Road up from village/train not for faint hearted or disabled but porter will collect your luggage and take it back down for you. allin all a lovely holiday and we would happily return to hotel again.

We spent from 5-12 June 2009 at the Brunner. My parents stayed there 8 years ago so we had a rough idea what it was like. It is a little tired in places, but the Swiss generally don't seem to go in for matching curtains etc in the bedrooms. However our room was spotless, the white fluffy towels were changed every day and the sheets midweek. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Eiger - what a view, our best ever! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. Ok, we didn't get a choice, but if they are serving something you don't like, they will do you something else. We would definitely go back there

Doesn't deserve its 3 stars, This hotel desperately needs re-furbishing. The staff were very helpful and friendly especially the owner's son. The hotel has had no money spent on it for 30 years or more. Good location and views which makes it all the more sad that the hotel could be so much more. Food was well prepared but to a budget with no choice of main course. Lacked basics that we now expect in a modern European hotel e.g, hairdryers, Tv, Safe and modern bathrooms.
